Criterion Now – Episode 19 – Best Films of the 21st Century, Dheepan, Wong Kar Wai, Revenge Films

Aaron is joined by Jon Laubinger, a superfan of the show and yet another cinephile from the great city of Boston. He is about to leave for Sweden for Bergman Week, so he may be the most envied guest of all time. We exchanged lists of our favorite films of the 21st century, talked about Dheepan, revenge films, David Lynch, Wong Kar Wai, and we speculated on what the upcoming September announcements could be.

I am a somewhat educated Criterion dork, with a History and Film Studies bachelor's degree and plenty of self-education over the years. My tastes are all over the map. Probably my favorite is 1930s French Poetic Realism, but I like everything from noir, to animation, to horror, westerns, and modern film. Usually I prefer film that challenges and requires something of the viewer.
